Data Management:  The Mint

About The Mint

The Mint is a companion system to ReDBox and acts as a Name Authority Service. At the University of Newcastle, required data sources are loaded into The Mint , e.g. researcher names, organistional unit names, FORs, SEOs, etc. The ReDBox interface has a look-up function to link to The Mint and search against the relevant data source, select the required authority record and link to this within the ReDBox metadata forms.
